E-Crete™ is a cost-competitive, environmentally friendly concrete made from 99% non-virgin materials. E-Crete™ is made by replacing the Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) component of concrete with safe industrial wastes like fly ash (from burning coal) and slag (from iron making). Using E-Crete™ reduces the carbon footprint of concrete by 80%.
- Better fire resistance than OPC
- Utilises 100% industrial wastes
- Can match any OPC compressive strengths
Status of Innovation:
E-Crete™ is currently available for limited commercial supply. By the end of 2008 several existing and new Australian plants will be geared to manufacture E-Crete™.
